Film & TV Production

Why do those in Film & TV Production need specialist accountants?

The creativity and dynamism of those in Film & TV production regularly sit uncomfortably with the often conventional world of the professional advisor. This is not true of LEES. We know your job is pressurised, image sensitive and always competitive. There can be peaks and troughs in the demands on your time. When the demands are intense, you need to know your tax and accounting matters are under control.

A production company should be organised to anticipate the legal and business issues that they may face. All Film & TV productions should be implemented through a formal entity, whether as the parent company that holds the necessary underlying rights or through a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) to protect the parent company and/or the financiers from operational liability. The company should select the type of business entity best suited to the project and both their short and long-term goals. Not only can we help you decide which entity is best for you, but we can also help with any of the following:

  • Film Tax Relief
  • Bookkeeping 
  • Annual accounts compliance
  • Tax planning and compliance
  • VAT treatment and compliance
  • Payroll
  • Advice on business structures
  • Free no obligation financial review

Our specialist team act as enthusiastic and trusted advisors to a multitude of clients with varying roles in the production of Film and TV, ranging from small individuals to large corporations. Below are just a few of the productions our clients have worked on:
